Daily Times Letters
Sir: This is with reference to the numerous reports that have emerged of known extremist organisations, including some with proven links to terrorist outfits, are operating in the conflict zones in the NWFP, and are trying to influence the internally displaced persons against the government. Several flags of terrorist organisations have been seen flying over some camps, while other workers have been distributing material against the government and the army at the camps.
These activities must be stopped. While the militants are outnumbered and will soon be ousted from Swat, these elements are their propaganda machines, and are just as dangerous as the armed ones. Through misinformation and outright lies, they want to pollute the minds of the people against Pakistan. These are also the elements that hate democracy and our constitution; they must be stopped.
